hi everyone

noticed a dribble of brake fluid at the reservoir going down where the brake booster is, had a look and seems to be comming from the reservoir bottom where it mounts to the master cylinder.

is there seals where the reservoir clips into the master cylinder and is it easy to do and do brakes need bleeding if fluids still at the holes where the reservoir clips in

and can those reservoir seals be easily bought at repco autopro

Hello,

Leaks can be deceptive. I would replace the whole Master Cylinder with a new one, with its age it will have wear inside and the internal seals wont be great. Around $180 on E Bay. You can buy a rebuild Kit, and you should be able to get individual seals also. Normally the fluid leaks from the back of the Master Cylinder when the seals fail. Brake Fluid will remove Paint, so be careful with what you decide to do.
